The Mud Home Off-Grid Roadmap (Video Series and PDF).


By far the biggest problem we all face when moving off-grid is organisation. Where do you start, eh? It can be pretty overwhelming. There are some fundamentals for creating a functioning off-grid world in the long term, and if you set about things in the right order at the outset, you can save yourself a lot of agravation. It’s not easy to complete a building project at the best of times, but an off-grid homestead is a real challenge.Having set up two off-grid worlds in two different countries now, and also watching a heck of a lot of other people go off-grid, I can see we all make mistakes. I’ve learned from a good 75% of mine, so I thought I'd share my winnings with you.

A Practical (But Not Technical) Guide to Setting Up an Off-Grid World

This roadmap is all about helping you make good choices especially at the outset when it really counts! It will show you what to prioritise when, and includes tips to help you stay motivated and avoid burnout.

The Video Series

I've created 15 short videos taking you round my own off-grid project in Spain. I show you how I dealt with all manner of issues from temporary accomodation to rain water harvesting. Have a look at the second part of the curriculum below for the full list. All the videos are mentionned there.

The PDF (117 pages)

I've separated the roadmap into two sections: The first is all about creating a working infrastructure so that you can actually inhabit your world without keeling over from exhaustion or cold, and hopefully keep your partner (if you have one) with you in the process. The second section is about taking your project into the longterm without going broke or crazy, and illustrates ways to cope with the challenges you may face.

This PDF is all about helping you organise your off-grid project. It gives you a framework so that you can make your own choices, and see what to do first, second, third and so on.

Who is this roadmap for?

  • This roadmap is ideal for people planning an off-grid adventure. Oh how I wish I'd read this before I started my first project!
  • Have you just bought land or begun your off-grid project? Are you wondering where the heck to begin? This roadmap is for you!
  • Are you confused by the mass of choices regarding power systems, livestock, food growing approaches, shelters? Yes there are zillions of options when you go off-grid. Yurt or campervan? Ram pump or solar pump? What this roadmap does is give an overview with the pros and cons of each element of your off-grid world to help you make the right choice for you and your land.
  • Budding Earth Whisperers who want to foster a closer more nourishing relationship with their land will also enjoy the Earth Whispering sections of this PDF too.

Who is this roadmap NOT for?

  • People looking for lots of technical details on any matter from independent power systems to hugelkultur, this PDF won't meet your needs. Any subject which has inspired entire books in and of themselves can't be covered adequately in a roadmap.
  • People wanting to learn how to build a house. This isn't a natural building course so if that's what you're after, this aint' it.

Earth Whispering?

The off-grid roadmap is primarily practical, but I did also add a special Earth Whispering Guide at the end of each chapter. This can be ignored of course. But for me this is the whole beauty of living off-grid, and it's the part which makes these off-grid adventures worthwhile. There are plenty of ideas on how to connect with your land and create a magical bond in a way which works for you which can be such a life-changing experience.
